[SPECIAL TO THE CITIZEN. I
LONDON, England, Sept. 17.-A Cen-
tral News dispatch from Seoul, dated 6
p. m., September 16, says that a great
battle has been fought at Ping Yang be-
tween the Chinese and Japanese troops,
in which the former were utterly
routed. On Thursday, a Japanese col-
umn from Pong San made a reconnois-
sance in fire, drawing the fire of the
Chinese forts, and ,thus ascertained
their positions. The column then fell
back in good order, with little loss.
By Friday night, all the Japanese
were in position for a combined attack
upon the enemy. The Gen San column
threatened the left flank of the Chinese,
the Pong San column menaced the
Chinese center, while the Hwang-Ju
column operated against the right,
which had been re-enforced the day
before by a detachment of marines
from the fleet at the mouth of the
The Chinese had utilized the old de-
fenses at Ping Yang and had thrown up
new works, making the position an ex-
.ceptionally strong one.
The Battle Commenced.
The battle was opened on Saturday at
'break by a Japanese cannonade of the
Chinese works, which was continued
without cessation until afternoon, the
thinese responding. The work with the
heavy guns showed good practice.
About 2 o'clock a body of infantry was
,thrown forward by the Japanese, and
poured rifle balls upon the enemy until
Throughout the day only the Pong
San column was engaged. The Chinese
defenses had suffered greatly, but the
losses on either side were small, both
the Chinese and Japanese having taken
advantage of all the shelter available.
The Japanese troops, however, had
Gained some advanced positions.
The fire continued at intervals during
tie night, and in the meantime the Jap-

'At 3 o'clock on Sunday morning an, at-
S tack was -made by the Jap.anese columns
simultaneously, and with admirable pre-
'' ,islon. The Chinese line, which were
." s,, vbtroug in front, werLe. found to be
Sweak in the rear, and here the attack
Swas a perfect success. The Chinese
were completely taken by surprise, and
were thrown (into a. panic. Hundreds
were cut down, and those who,escaped
death; finding themselves surrounded at
every point, broke and fled.
Some of Viceroy Li' Hung Chang's
European drilled troops stood their
ground to the eastward, and were cut
down-to a man. The Pong San column,
Swarming over the defenses in front,
,completed the rout. Half an hour after
the attack was ,opened the position at
Ping Yang was in possession of the
16,600 Chinese Killed and Taken.
It is estimated that 20,000 Chinese sol-
*diers were engaged in the battle. The
Japanese captured immense stores of
provisions and munitions of war and
hundreds of colors. The Chinese loss is
.estimated at 16,000 killed, wounded, arid
Among those captured by the Japanese
are several of the Chinese commanding
*officers, Including Grer-Tso-Fung, Com-
mander-in-Chief of the Manchurian
Army, who was severely wounded. The
Japanese loss is only thirty killed and
*270 wounded, including eleven officers.
Most of. the casualties among the
Japanese occurred during the first day's
fighting, and very few were the result of
the night attack. The Japanese forces
are in active pursuit of the fugitives,
who have thrown away their arms, and
.readily yield themselves prisoners.

ORANGES GOING FORWARD.
Liverpool Furnishes the Best Market for
The new crop of Florida oranges is al-
ready commencing to go forward,
although the shipments so far are, of
course, rather small. The Clyde Line
steamers have taken from 600 to 800
boxes on several recent trips, and the
Yemassee will carry 750 boxes on her
Strip to New York this morning.
Upon inquiry at the Florida Fruit Ex-
change, it was learned that two ship-
ments have been made by the Exchange
during the last few days. These ship-
ments were about four hundred boxes
each, and both went to Liverpool.
Mr. Marvin, auditor of the exchange,
was asked why shipments were made to
Liverpool instead of to New York or
other portions of the United States,
"The reason," he replied, "is because
the early fruit finds a butter market
there. The fruit is, of course, some-
what green, and sells better in England
than it does in the United States. Then
again, from about the middle of Septem-
ber until November 15 is the only time
that we can ship Florida oranges to Liv-
erpool and sell them profitably. At that
time the Mediterranean fruit commences-
to come in, and is sold so cheaply that
it shuts off-the Florida product."
The exchange has not as yet re-
ceived returns on any of the fruit
shipped. Last year the first shipments
brought $4 per boz.
THE MAIN STREET PAVEMENT.
Inspector Wilson Condemns Many Bricks-,
and Has Them Taken Up.
When Mr. James Y. Wilson, the newly
appointed inspector of brick, went on
duty, he inspected the pavement at the
corner of Bay and Main Streets, and
before he reached Forsyth Street, on
Main, he ordered a number of the bricks.-
taken up. The grounds on which they
were thrown out are that they were
either not burned at all or were burned,
too much. Those that are not burned
at all absorb water and soon crumble,
while those that are burned too much
will crack easily.
Mr. Smith, the contractor who has
charge of the laying of the pavement,.
looked at the work of destruction going
on, and wondered when it was going to
stop. When Mr. Smith was asked how
the defective bricks got there, he replied
that if they had been properly inspected
at the cars they would have never been
sent to him, but)as they did come he
was under the impression that they
wore all right. Of course this is a loss
to the contractor.

Sanitary Inspector Roberts and C.
Otis had,a dispute yesterday in the lat-

sanitary condition of the place. Roberts
wanted cleaning done in one way, and
Otis another. Mr. Otis says that Mr.
Roberts threatened to take his stick
away from him, and omash him on the
head with it. During the quarrel Otis
used some strong words, and Roberts
had him arrested for cursing. He was
taken to the police station, where he.
gave bond for his appearance. Ioberts,

laundry is just across the river, of which
Mr. Yancy is manager. The track there
is perfectly straight for a mile, and was

it the little head rolled to one side.

The mother and father were almost

[SPECIAL TO THE CITIZEN. ]
ST. AUGUSTINE, Sept. 17.-But very
little has been said about the fifty odd
soldiers, members of Company C, Fifth
United States Infantry, who are now
stationed on Anastasia Island.
These men and their officers have been
in camp at the target range over there
for over two weeks and will remain two
weeks longer. They are down to daily
practice, and some of the men are mak-,
ing remarkably good scores, although
none of them are working for records as
During the past week one very objec-
tionable feature has arisen which the
marksmen cannot overcome, and that is
the prevailing northeastly winds. The
men go out to the rifle range early every
morning for practice. They have shot
all of the way from two to five hundred
'yards, and make good scores; many of
the men seldom hit outside of the four
But the rub will come when the men
shoot the 600-yard distance. This will
not be so easy, as the gauges and all al-
lowances change very materially from
500 to 600 yards.
The men are being instructed very
carefully and minutely in every detail
pertaining to target practice, and they
go about the work scientifically.
As soon as Company C returns from
the island, which will be the last of Sep-
tember, Company D, the crack shots of
the regiment, will take their turn, and
perhaps break some records.
Rumored Transfer of Troops.
The Army and Navy Journal of two
weeks ago published a rumor to the
effect that the troops stationed at St.
Francis Barracks, this city, were soon
to be transferred to another port. As
far as can be learned the rumor is with-
out good foundation, and the companies
here do not expect a change for a long
time to come; certainly not until next
The people here hope that the com-
panies will remain. They are a gentle-
manly set of men, and have given very
little trouble during the three years that
they have been stationed in this city.
There is a colored man in this city
who should certainly be examined men-
tally, for he is undoubtedly of unsound
mind, and should be adjudged so and
confined in some asylum. Eve v resi-
dent of this plaoe knows this -hliacter
and understands his condition, but with
strangers it is different. Ladies vhI, doJo
not know him, are sometimes seriously
frightened, while men are often prompted
to knock the man down.
Just as soon as the negroget arin
bf liquor, he bd'conmes wild, am. tre
around the streets like a mrnaniae,' curs-
ing and swearing at everyone he meeots,-
no matter who it is. He has often bee.n
knocked down for cursing people, and is
oftentimes arrested on the chliarge of
cursing and swearing, but it seems to do

The Rifles, having been measured for
their new uniforms, and the order hav-
ing been given, they are now very busy
planning for the money to pay for them
by the time they are ready. It is pro-
posed to hold one or two entertainments
and to give an .operetta in the opera
house. This, it is fully, expected, will
provide the whole amount.
The first of those entertainments will
begin on October 2, and the best talent
the town provides has been got to-
gether, and a first-class concert may be
expected. A responsible committee has
the work in hand, and will be assisted
by Mr. Fritz FVeyberg.

POPULAR BOOKS AT COST.
An Offer Worthy of Consideration by
Readers of the Citizen.
SWith the purpose of meeting the de-
mand for light reading matter, the CITI-
SZEN has obtained a large stock of popu-
g lar works of fiction, and offers these
Books to its readers. The works are by
the best-known authors, are printed in
clear type, are handsomely bound in
cloth, and are of 12mo size.
The CITIZEN has made its .purchase
through a large bankrupt sale, and is
thereby enabled to supply the volumes
very much below the regular retail
price. It gives to its readers the full
benefit of its purchase, charging only
the actual cost and taking no profit
whatever for itself.
The uniform price for each of the
volumes is 13 cents. In order to confine
the benefit of this sale to its readers, the
CITIZEN requires, in addition to the 13
cents, thirteen coupons, cut from its
pages, similar to the one published in
this issue of the paper. These coupons
have a different date each day, and the
coupons of thirteen consecutive days
must by presented with the 13 cents to
obtain a volume.
The books are to be found at the de-
livery department of the CITIZEN build-
ing, 318 West Bay Street, ground floor;
and they can be obtained on any week-
day morning, between 9 and 11 o'clock.
CITIZEN readers outside of Jackson-
ville can obtain books by mail if, in ad-
dition to the 13 cents and thirteen cou-
pons, they .vill send 7 cents to cover

Notes from Northern Papers About Their
Races at Springfield.
S Many of the Northern papers and
cycling press gave the Florida contingent
of bicycle riders a complimentary word
Sin their reports of the late races at
A few concerning the races on the last
day are here appended.,
S The Boston Herald of Friday has the
I following regarding the mile handicap of
Thursday, in which Saunders was hurt:
"The mile handicap, class A, was a
chapter of accidents, no less than twelve
of the eighteen starters falling in the
, back-stretch on the last half, Saunders,
Fuller, and Coombs being the most seri-
ously injflred. At the pistol, Adams,
from the limit, went in to make the pace.
Fuller, too, from the seventy-yard mark,
lost no time whatever in getting down
to work. Fuller had soon overhauled
his first man, and was traveling in com-
pany "with the first bunch. Inthe mean-
time the low-mark men had been doing
great work. Davidson had got away
from Sims, and was cutting a rattling
pace. Slowly, but surely, they crawled
upon the leaders. Fuller suddenly came
from the rear of his bunch, and it looked
as though it was his race, until as the
field made the turn some one fell, carry-
ing all of the first bunch but Adams
down with him. In a moment the sec-
ond bunch was on the prostrate men,
and all but four went to grass. Once
free of the mess, Adams flew, with the
speed of a greyhound, and won hands
down, with J. J. Casey and W. F. Sims
fifty yards to the rear. Sims equaled
the mile record created by himself yes-
Friday's Boston Globe says of the two-
mile handicap race:
"The two-mile handicap had Knapp
and R. S. Williamson, S. B. C., on
scratch, with Monte Scott, Plairifield, N.
J., 10; Frank E. Wing, Framingham C.
C., 30; B. W. Pierce, Linden B. C., 30;
Charles Church, Philadelphia, 70; W. M.
Pettigrew, P. C. C., Boston, 70; J. C.
Wettergreen, Malden, 90; J. J. Casey,
Worcester, 90; C. J. Lewis, Northamp-
ton, 200, and W. Hi Caldwell and Saun-
ders of Jacksonville, Fla., who had the
limit, 230 yards. The latter two had a
partnership all by themselves until the
first mile, when Burns W. Pierce piloted
the long markers up to them, and they
died. Knapp rode a great race, and was
Sled by Monte Scott all through the race,
while Jack Wettergreen, 90 yards, led
the second throng. On the bell lap, the
scratch men and Monte Scott went to the
front, followed by Wettergreen. When
the sprint came, Knapp won out in 4: 37;
Wettergreen, second; Scott, third; Wil-
liamson, second scratch man, fourth."
From the American Wheelman:
"George Adams, the Southern cham-
pion, did remarkably well in the mile
handicap, in which Sims, the Washing-
tonian, duplicated his mark for a Class
A record, made the day before. Adams
showed improved form, but lacks judg-
ment in getting position for the finish.
A BIG ORANGE CROP.
Buyers Think the Yield Will Be More
Than Five Million Boxes.
Orange buyers from the North are now
coming in, and several firms have re-
opened offices here.
In a talk with one of their buyers yes-
Sterday, a CITIZEN reporter was told that
the yield fbr this season, if no storms
came, would be more than 5,000,000
"I have been watching things pretty
closely," said the buyer, "and my in-
formation is from all sections of the
State. There are few places where the
crop will not be larger than it was last
year, and if nothing happens to the crop
I would not be surprised if the total
shipments were 5,000,000 boxes. Why,
in the DeLand section alone they claim
they will ship 200,000 boxes, and I know
that in Orange, Brevard, Citrus, Marion,
and other counties the increase over last
year's yield will be large."
"Will you buy outright, or ask for
shipments on commission," asked the
"Well, we prefer to do a commission
business, of course. Generally in the
beginning of the season the grower wants
too much, and we can't afford to pay him
the prices he demands. Then, we have
to ship on commission. But later on he
generally comes down, and as the market
gets firmer we can afford to pay more,
and then we purchase a good deal. If
we could buy at fair figures earlier, we
would do so.
"Speaking of shipments, there is one
peculiar thing, and that is that in some
seasons oranges ship better in bulk than
in boxes, and the next season it will be
the reverse. It is on account of the fruit
being filled almost to bursting with juice.
Whenever there is a season with much
rain, the oranges ship badly. I see you
have lots of rain so far this season. If
it keeps on, it will have the effect of
making the fruit hard to ship on account
of the fullness and ripeness.
"We shall open here about October 1,
and I suppose shipments will begin early
in November, or in the latter part of
October. I shall take a trip throughout
the State first, but I really think that
my estimate of over 5,000,000 boxes is
too low, if anything."

A BEAR ON A LARK.
He Eats Up the Breakfast of a Colored
Woman and Steals a Pincuslion.
Jim, the 2-year-old bear belonging to
Abe Campbell, a Main Street butcher,

La Villa, near Campbell's house early
Sunday forenoon and improved his
liberty by taking a stoll around the
neighborhood, and incidentally eating

Mrs. Smith, a colored woman livingon
Forsyth Street, was preparing her break-
fast yesterday morning when all at once
she heard a strange sound at the kitchen
*dobr and the next moment a big bear
walked in. He went directly to the
table that was spread in the middle of
the kitcken, stood up on his hind legs
and began reaching for some steaming
hot biscuit that stood in the center.
Mrs. Smith ran into the street and
screamed. In a moment the neighbors
were aroused and in a few minutes half
a hundred people were crowding around
her little house all anxious to see the
Jim Enjoyed His Breakfast.
Those who got near the kitchen door
saw the big bear calmly eating away.
He ate up. the biscuits, licked out the
hominy dish, rubbed the grease from the
bacon all over his muzzle, and then, tak-
"ing up the sugar bowl, began on his
desert. Sticks then began to fly, and
Jim got uneasy. Taking a platter in one
paw and eating with the other, he wad-
dled to the door, the spectators flying in
all directions. The table-cloth became
entangled in his legs and over went bear,
table, and all. Jim finally emerged from
the debris and stalked majestically across
the walk and tried to get into a restau-
rant on the corner. The people shut
the door in his face, and Jim, after
:studying the menu pasted, up at the
door, concluded that the variety wasn't
great enofigh, and he shuffled up Second

of several hundred men, women, and
children following him, shouting and

tried to get into several yards, but his

fence, but his chain caught and threw
him back. Several ladies sitting on the
porch ran into the house and closed the
-doors and windows. A short way fur-
ther down the bear found a gate open,
and walked into Mrs. Flinn's boardihg-
house. The ladies on the porch retreated

Walking, he turned into Mrs. S. B.
Flinn, Jr.'s room. Going up to the bu-
,reau he stood up, and seeing his image
in the mirror, growled threateningly at
the other bear, and the onlookers ex-
pected to see him dash for his supposed

and as the other bear didn't bother him,
why he wouldn't cause trouble. Seeing
a handsome pincushion on the bureau
,he took that, and turning around marched
This was more than Mrs. Flynn could
stand, and she pluckily got a revolver to

not to. Her sister, Miss Uguett, how-
ever, marched up to the animal, and

such summary treatment to resist. The

have Mr. Kelly, father of the candidate
for Senator on the Independent ticket,
removed from the Board of County
Commissioners. A representative of
the Democrats called upon Mr. Kelly,
and assured him that there was no
ground for the rumor, as it was believed
that he would see that the board should
make a fair appointment of clerkA and
inspectors. Mr. Kelly assured tihe Dem-
ocrats that, as his son was a candidate,
the board would be all the more careful
in its appointments of the election of-
ficers. When the board met, however,
and made the appointments, the Demo-
crats did not consider that they were as
well treated as, from Mr. Kelly's assur-
ances, they had a right to expect to be,
and they made some complaint on this
point. Nevertheless, they now accept
the situation, and expect to elect their
candidates, as they have a majority of
the people behind them. They stand
upon the correctness of their position
before the people and the presumption
that the election will be fairly conduct-
ed. The outlook is encouraging; good
feeling seems to prevail, and there is no
cause for alarm in regard to the Nassau
HAS IT COME TO THIS?
The desperation of the Independents
has led them to make a most remarkable
appeal for the negro vote. They have
caused the following circular to be
printed and circulated, as can be verified
at the proper time:
"Notice to voters! There will be a
straight-out Democratic meeting at Peo-
ple's Hall, Tuesday night, September 18.
All voters are urged upon to come out
and hear for themselves the issue that
is affecting their interest now, and
which will do you much harm if not at-
tended to in time.
"'Section 2268, Revised Statutes of
Florida-All railroad companies doing
business In this State shall sell to all re-
spectable persons of color first-class
tickets, on application, at the same rates
that white persons are charged, and
shall furnish and set apart for the use of
such persons of color who purchase such
first-class ticket, a car or cars in each
passenger train, as may be necessary,
equally as good and provided with the
same facility for comfort as shall or may
be provided for whites using and travel-
ing as passengers on first-class tickets.
No conductor or person in charge of any
passenger train on any railroad shall
suffer or permit any white person to ride,
sit, or travel, or do any act or thing to
insult or annoy any person of color while
sitting, riding, and traveling in said car
so set apart for the use of colored per-
-Are they giving us as good for the
money as they promised? No! And
why not give the colored people as good
accommodation as the white people? Is
it because they think that they are not
good enough? Then why charge them
as much as they do the white people
and then compel them to ride in dirty
cabs where they are smoked out by
smokers? Can you standit? No. Then
let every voter come out and do his duty
at People's Hall Tuesday night, Septem-
ber 18, 1894."
In the-first place, let us see whether
there is any argument in the foregoing.
The Independent circular tells*the ne-
groes that they are not getting as good
traveling accommodations as the law
says that they shall have, and seeks to
make the negroes believe that a railway
commission will correct the alleged
abuse. Of course all thinking negroes
will readily see that here is a plain pre-
sumption upon their intelligence. If it
is true, that this statute is not being
strictly complied with, how can a rail-
way commission compel its enforce-
ment? The section quoted in the Inde-
pendent circular is a law of Florida.
All the commissions 'that might be
created from now till doomsday could
not have any relation to this matter. It
is the business of the courts to construe
and enforce the laws of Florida, and no
man of ordinary intelligence, if he is fair-
minded, will contend to the contrary. A
railway commission cannot in any sense
become a judicial body. It would be just
as reasonable to talk about bringing ac-
tion before\a commission for damages for
loss of life or property as to contend
that the statutory laws of Florida can be
enforced by a railway commission.
If the separate-coach law of this State
is not being properly enforced, the courts
are open for redress, and they are the
only institutions whose aid can be in-
voked to compel an enforcement of this
law. It can readily be seen, therefore,
that this appeal for the negro vote is one
of tho most misleading and transparent
pieces of demagogy of which the Inde-
pendents have yet been guilty.
But above and beyond all this there is
a feature connected with this matter
that ought to cause the cheek of every
true citizen to tinge with shame. After
all that has been done jointly by the
patriotic white citizens of Duval County
and the better and more conservative
element of the colored citizens to re-
store and maintain peaceful and friendly
relations between the two races, the
thought that there can be found.within the
borders of this county professing white
Democrats who secretly or openly aid and
abet a movement destined to disturb
those relations, is a cause for profound
humiliation. What must our fellow-
citizens in the other counties of the
State think of such a condition of affairs
The black people of Duval County
are numerous. It is essential that we
maintain friendly relations' with them.
They are important factors in the mate-
rial and commercial progress of the city
and county. As a rule they are indus-
trious and law-abiding. Many of them
are making comfortable livings and earn-
ing good salaries. They are free to engage
lically co-ordinated. Moreover, there
ire conflicts among the schools as to
what sociology means, and the treat-
ment of the different social sciences is
quite divergent and uncertain, as also
are the schemes for pushing investiga-
tions into facts and principles. The
ime, therefore, seems opportune for an
institutional organization which shall
endeavor to bring harmony out of the
Other reasons for such organized study
are found in the doubt or confusion
about these matters among the majority
of the best people, and the fact that
many who enter the field as doctors have
not learned the first principles of these
sciences, while social quacks abound
who do more harm than good; this, in
turn, being due to the fact that no in-
stitution offers a complete scheme of
study for the science as a profession.
The different remedies suggested for ex-
isting social diseases, and the undue
multiplication of societies for alleviating
this or that misery, constitute further
reasons for a professional school of soci-
It is proposed to make this Hartford
school gradually a center of Investiga-
tion, gathering material illustrative of
past and present social conditions, with
a view to discovering the underlying
formative laws producing the growth
and decay, the health and disease of the
social organism. The instruction will
cover all branches of social science, to
implant a knowledge of facts and
theories, to train in methods of research,
and thus to turn out a body of competent
teachers and reformers. Social literature
will be published which will be both
scientific and popular, so as to interest
and stimulate the people.
The curriculum will cover three years,
and among the subjects taken up dur-
ing the first year will be the philosophy
of sociology; the evolution of the family
and its treatment, considered biolog-
ically, legally," theologically, and ethic-
aaly; the status of women; domestic
economy; food, shelter, and dress, his-
torically and sanitarily considered; sani-
tary science; the growth of cities and
the decline of the country. The list of
lecturers includes many eminent pro-
fessors in various colleges, and other
authorities on social problems. Prac-
tical work will be assigned the students
in connection with the Young Men's
Christian Association, the Associated
Charities, and the variety of missionary,
benevolent, and reformatory institutions
in which Hartford abounds. The school
wi1 be open to men and women alike.
A college diploma, or its equivalent, is
required for its regular students, but
non-grad u ltes desiring to take the course
'r n do so on payment of the tuition fee,
.fopughi they will not be admitted to ma-
tCi.eulation. Any person can attend par-

i The evil of ,unequal assessments of
property for taxation in Florida has been
presented to the attention of the people
and the Legislatures unceasingly for
yeMars, yet a remedy has not been dis-
covered. The evil continues to exist,
and the complaints concerning it from
the people and the press continue to
grow louder year by year. Legislatures
meet and legislate and adjourn, and still
,no progress is made toward a solution of
the difficult question. Governor after
Governor has directed the attention of
th law-making power to the evil, and
elaborate committee reports have been
presented, detailing theS operation of the
laws and suggesting remedies for their
defects. Bills of "learned length and
thtundering sound" have been intro-
d:lued, and oceans of rhetoric poured
forth in their support, and still the same
old meaningless platitudes are enacted
The State Constitution (Art. 9, sec. 1)
comiauuds that the Legislature "shall
provide fur a uniform and equal rate of
taxation, and shall prescribe such regu-
lat ons as shall secure a just valuation
of Tall property". Every revenue law
enacted since 1874 has contained the im-
perative requirement that all property
shall be assessed at its "full cash value".
Thi provision, if faithfully executed,
wold have fully satisfied the terms of
the pbove-quoted constitutional require-
ment, since the assessment of all prop-
ertyrat its "full cash value" would nec-
essarily involve and effect the ascertain-
lumeit and application of a standard re-
sult ng in "a just valuation of all prop-
Governor Fleming, in his message to
the Legislature of 1891, used the follow-
ing language, after stating the -provi-
si'Ina of the Constitution and Statutes :
"But a wide departure from the laws
is th4 rule in almost every part of the
Stat, and the disposition to make low
assessments, so as to avoid paying more
than a due proportion of the State taxes,
obta sA, and is acted upon in Iprobably
ever county. I presume that it is safe -
to sal that the average rate of valuation
of t taxable property of the State is
not diore than one-third of its value, and
thait while the assessments of 1890
aggregate about $92,000,000, the ac-
tual -value of the taxable property
is oa least $300,000,000. Another un-
clinations lead them to select. They are
prosperous and happy. Can it be possi-
ble that there are persons in Duval
County whose insatiable thirst for place
and power leads them to reverse this
order of things and precipitate a reign
of chaos and anarchy? May true patriot-
ism and wisdom and justice forbid !
It is possible that cases occur in which
colored passengers are subjected to in-
conveniences in traveling. It is equally
true that white passengers also experi-
ence difficulties of the same kind. The
law requires the railways to provide
separate coaches for colored passengers,
and makes it the duty of conductors in
charge of trains to see that these coaches
are reserved for them.
If the law is not enforced, let the
courts be invoked to enforce it. If
rowdy and boisterous white passengers
annoy or disturb the colored passengers
in the enjoyment of the rights given
them under the law, the law has made
ample provision for the punishment of
such offenders. Let the negro passenger
who may be so annoyed appeal to the
conductor. If the conductor shall not
grant him relief, let him appeal to the
law, and bring both the railway company
and the offensive passenger to punish-
A few years ago the persons who are
now attempting to pose as the negro's
friends procured the passage by the
Legislature of the memorable "House
bill No. 4". The argument brought to
bear upon their white fellow-Legislatorn
was in part an appeal to race prejudice.
They were told that such a bill was
necessary to keep the negro from having
a voice in the administration of the city's
The advocates of the measure did not
secure the advantages under the ap-
pointive power that they expected to
obtain, and they subsequently moved for
a repeal of the bill. In order to recon-
cile their new position with the argu-
ment advanced for the passage of the
bill, they satd that the negro had become
quiet and orderly, and that there was
then no further necessity for disfran-
Are the Independents now endeavoring
to create a necessity for another "House
bill No. 4"? The intelligent negroes
of Duval County will not be slow to dis-
cover' the inconsistencies in the record
of the Independents as their professed
friends. And they will naturally con-

A NEW MOVEMENT IN EDUCATION.
The socialistic and anarch it ie influ-
ences and tendencies of the time, both
at home and abroad, cannot fail to
arrest the attention of every thoughtful
observer. The outbreaks of anarchislts.
in France, Italy, and other uatiofro of
Europe have never before been s.o nud,-
merous, so widespread, and so alarming
as during the, past year. Ev.-n in the
United States, which we once supposed
to be free from all such dangers, there
have been of late growing .signs of a
rising revolt against the existing order
of things. On the part of some there is
a blind groping after a better system of
some sort, which is generally conceived
of as more or less socialistic in its
nature. With others there is a readi-
ness for the overthrow of all institu
tions, and a debauch of anarchy. ,
With the public mind in this frame,
the first necessity is that of sound teach-,
ing. Not merely among the ignorant is
instruction needed. Many people who
consider themselves intelligent are yet
without the knowledge of the questions;
at issue which is essential to a sound
judgment. The very framework and
constitution of society are involved in
some of these questions.' So, too, are
the governing motives of human nature
and the springs of action. To talk
about a "new order" without a thorough
understanding of the old, is to darken
counsel. To devise fresh schemes for
the constitution of society without a
,clear perception of the influences which
control men and women, is worse than a
waste of time.
The most hopeful scheme yet proposed
for giving the needed instruction is the
"school of sociology" which is about to
open at Hartford, Conn., under the care
of the Society for Education Extension.
The high standing of this organization is
shown by its board of trustees, which
includes the president of the theological
seminary, the clerk of the Supreme Court,
a professor in Trinity College, two prin-
cipals of schools, the literary editor of
one of the newspapers, and several of
the most prominent and public-spirited
business men of Hartford.
The reason for establishing this school
is the feeling of its founders that "the
present social conditions require more
concentrated scientific investigation
than they have yet received". The evo-
lution of the family, the discontent with
the traditional views of marriage and
the consequent growth of divorce, the
increase or decrease of population, the
expansion of cities and the depletion of
the country, the relation, of capital to
labor, the augmenting volume of vice
and crime-such are among the facts and
themes which are believed to require
deeper and more protracted inquiry than
they have hitherto received in order to
confirm what is godd and to eradicate
what is evil.
Organized study is demanded by the
very complexity of the subject involved,
since social science covers a vast number
of the law is the want of uniformity of
valuation, which results in very unequal
taxation. The benefit to the State of a
full valuation of taxable property and a
correspondingly low rate of taxation is
manifest. I therefore repeat to you my
recommendation to the Legislature of
1889, to provide for a State Board of
Equalizers, to visit each county and
revise assessments, with a view to se-
curing a just and proper valuation of
property, and a uniform and equal rate
of taxation throughout the State."
The Legislature disregarded the strong
words and wise recommendation of Gov-
ernor Fleming, and contented itself with
the re-enactment of the stereotyped prO-
visions, making no effort to compel their
execution by the assessing officers.
Governor Mitchell, in his message to
the Legislature of 1893, after reciting
the effect of the existing laws and not-
ing their disregard by the assessing
"Some of the States have State As-
sessors, and this method of assessing
.the taxes is respectfully submitted for
your consideration. If a uniform as-
sessment of the property of the State
could be arrived at, and the property as-
sessed at something like its true value,
the revenue of the State would be ample
to meet all her indebtedness, and the
burden would not fall heavily upon any
property owner in the State, and it is to
be hoped that you will be able to bring
about this much-to-be-desired result."
But the Legislature of 1893, like all its
predecessors, failed to enact any law cor-
recting the evil. A bill providing for
the establishment of a State Board of
Equalization passed the Senate, and was
defeated in the House. The House vote
on the bill was as follows :
'Yeas: The Speaker, Messrs. Clarke,
Cochran, Daniel, Denham, Harp, Hol-
land, Jennings, Lee, Long, Morse, Nel-
son, Oliver, Rawls, Bourke, Shine, Wall,
Wilson, and Zim. Total, 19.
Nays: Messrs. Alexander,'Berry, Bry-
an, Campbell, Dell; Dees, Fletcher,
Finlayson, Floyd, Foreman, Fortner,
Gaskins, Garner, Gilchrist, Goodbread,
Hendry, Hamilton, Hooks, Johnson,
Jones, Layne, Means, Morgan, McCaskill,
McKinnon, Parker, Pickett, Priest, Reid,
Ross, Rowe, and Williams. ,Total, 32,
Comptroller -Bloxham, in his report
for the year 1892, thus treats this im-
"Many of the assessors of the State,
with a laudable desire to approximate,
that condition, held a convention at the
capital during the past year to consider
the existing inequalities. It was ascer-
tained that property in some counties
was assessed at 90 per cent of its value,
while in other counties the assessment
was as low as 20 per cent. This, too, in
the face of the plain letter of the law
directing that property shall be as-
sessed at its 'full cash value'. Comment
is unnecessary. A State Board of Equal-
ization has been recommended by many
as a proper remedy for this. inequality.
It would be ,well to -onsider in this
connection whether a convention of as-
sessors every few years, clothed with
ample power, could not better accom-
plish the result. I think so."
Argument to show the necessity for
effective legislative action on this sub-
ject would be superfluous. TPat which
is now essential is a wise choice of the
proper remedy; and its prompt and effect-
ive application by the next Legislature.
That a State Board of, Equalization,
empowered to adjust the inequalities of
valuation as between the several coun-
ties of the State, is the correct solution
of the chief difficulty, has been almost
undeniably demonstrated by the best
opinions advanced upon the subject.
But the establishment of a State Board
would comprise only one branch of
the necessary remedy. The error in
legislation that has been continuously
perpetrated through all these years con-
sists in having imposed? a duty without
providing penalties for disobedience.
The assessors are commanded to do a
certain thing in a certain way. Not-
withstanding their continuous and obsti-
nate failure to obey the command, no
punishment for disobedience has been
fixed. There being no penalty, a con-
certed agreement or tacit understand-
ing among them that obedience was un-
necessary and that each should do about
as he pleased, has ensued, and thus the
interests of four hundred thousand peo-
ple have been left at the mercy of half a
hundred of their paid servants, who have
safely defied the law while pretending to
execute it under their official oaths.
With a State Board of Equaliza ion,
and an adequate penalty against ssess-
ors for failure to execute the Laws, the
problem would be solved, and Florida
would attain that financial condition
that its rapidly growing wealth entitles
it to; while its people, relieved of the
inequalities of taxation under which
they now suffer and complain in vain,
would prosper as they have never pros-
PLATT IN FULL'CONTROL.
Mlorton Will Be Nominated for Governor
of New York.
[SPECIAL TO THE CITIZEN.]
SARATOGA, N. Y., Sept. 17.-Morton
will be nominated for Governor to-mor-
row, and will have for his running mate
Wadsworth, or Saxton, or Hendricks.
Fassett's name will also be formally pre-
sented, and he will go down in defeat,
but, his friends say, not in dishonor.
The anti-Morton people are divided
upon a choice for Governor between J.
Sloat Fassett, General Daniel Butter-
field, and Judge Leslie W. Russell of St.
Lawrence. The other candidates who
declared themselves in the race are now
seeking the Lieutenant Governorship,
and the fight over the second placeon the
ticket promises to be a lively tussle.
Mr.- Platt will permit the convention to
nominate the candidate for Lieutenant
Governor. Platt and his men say that
the total vote against Morton on the
first ballot will not reach 150. This
would give Morton 582 votes. As there
are 732 delegates to the convention, it
only requires 367 votes to nominate.
Platt urged him to abandon the canvass
for the nomination for Governor, and
enter the race for LVutenant Governor,.
promising him their support if he would
take this course.
"That proffer of the nomination for
Lieutenant Governor has been made be-
fore," said Mr. Fassett,"and I absolutely
declined. I am a candidate for the first
place, and for no other."

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1894.
For Eastern and Western Florida: Showers;
WHILE the Independents are trying to
reconcile the inconsistencies of their
record on the questioA of the repeal of
the election tlaw, it should not be for-
gotten that the candidate of the Demo-
crats for Senator from this county long
ago placed himself on record as an advo-
cate of repeal.

A CORRESPONDENT takes issue with the
statement of the CITIZEN that the Popu-
lists, or so-called "Jeffersonian Demo-
crats", profess to indorse the Democratic
platform. The CITIZEN did not intend
to be understood, of course, as contend-
ing that the Ocala, Omaha, and St.
Louis conventions embodied the currency
plank of the Democrats in their plat-
forms. It is a fact, nevertheless, that
the "Jeffersonian Democrats" profess to
have held on to the Democratic theory
of finance, and that they declare that
the Democratic Party itself has strayed
THE Tampa Times inquires :
"Can anyone enlighten us as to the
politics of the Key West Equator-Demo-
crat? J. M. Phipps is the candidate of
the regular Democracy for the State
Senate, and C. B. Pendleton, owner of
the Equator-Democrat, is running for
the same office on an Independent ticket.
He claims to be a Democrat, but is can-
vassing his district in company withtthe
Chairman of the Executive Committee
of the Third Party, and solicits the sup-
port of the Republicans. The Equator-
Democrat' is backing Pendleton, and in
its last issue published on its editorial
page a letter from him which it announces
'was handed in as a communication, but
we adopt it editorially'. Pendleton's
letter is a sharp arraignment of what he
terms the Monroe County ring."
In compliance with the request of the
Times for enlightenment, it is not amiss,
perhaps, to say that there is.no Third
Party in Monroe County, and that the
alleged Third Party Chairman with
whom Mr. Pendleton is canvassing the
district is.the Chairman of the regular
S Democratic Committee. The issue in
S Monroe County appears to be drawn be-
tween the masses of the Democratic
S Party and the adherents of the "ring",
who polled something less than a hun-
dred votes at their primaries.
THE candidates of the regular Democ-
racy in Nassau County have been repre-

wholly, to the action of Democrats who
were so disgusted .with their own party
that they felt like voting against it, but \
were not quite ready, as others were, to
go the whole Republican ticket. No cir-
cumstances could be more favorable to
the Populist cause than those which ex-
isted in Maine on Monday, and, the fail-
ure of the party to make any impression
on the masses must remove the last
lingering hope of its leaders that there
is a future for it in the East any more-
than in the West.
Silver and Protection. A
From the Chicago Herald.
Senator Cullom says that "silver is-
the ally of protection". That is what
the Herald always has said. They are
affiliated frauds. A law making 65 cents
worth of silver a dollar, and compelling
the people to take it for a dollar, to en-
rich the silver mine owners, is the same
kind of swindle as putting 60 cents tax
on 40 cents' worth of goods, making the
people pay a dollar for the same to en-
rich the factory owners., Each is spolia-
tion of the people for the benefit of a
class. Both'are robbery of the many for
the enrichment of a few. '

AFRAID OF LYNCHING.
D. J. Holt Will Ask for Full Protection
for His Son.
D. J. Holt, the father of Walter A.
Holt, who is confined in the county jail
awaiting requisition papers to take him
to Texas for trial on suspicion of having
murdered an attorney named Beard in
that State in 1893, says he is uneasy
about the safety of his son if he is taken
"It maybe all right," said he yester-
day .to a CITIZEN reporter, "but I would
prefer that he be better guarded. I
have .heard hints that if he started he
would not reach that town alive. In
fact, my son has heard the same intima-
tion, and he is not satisfied to go back
unless some precautions are taken. Why
is it, I wonder, that Mr. McMichael is
here too? Why did he have to come with
the Sheriff? It looks rather queer to me,
and I am not at all satisfied.
"There are a good many things about
this murder of Beard that may come out
some day. I understand that he had an
insurance of $11,000 that is being with-
held by the insurance company for some
reason dr other. I have had many talks
with people in that town and found few
people who believed that my son had
anything to do with the murder. The
idea of a new-comer in a town beingable
to enter a strange house, ascertain
where the man slept, and kill him, as
was done in this case! The circum-
stantial evidence is so thin that it looks
suspicious to me. Certainly I shall in-
sist on a safe guard for my son if he is
taken back to Texas. We have no fear
of a fair trial, but lynch law knows no
justice. There are'too many complca-
tions in this matter to satisfy me yet,
and I am watching matters carefully."
The requisition papers for W. A. Holt
did not arrive from Tallahassee yester-
day as expected. It is thought, how-
ever, that they will be received by Sheriff
Jones this morning, and unless compli-
cations arise, Holt will then be taken to
Texas to answer to the charge.

Yesterday was as cool a day as there

The highest the thermometer registered

PURPOSES TO SUE THE CITY.
Mr. Broward WVants To Know WVhy He Is
Not Paid for His Wood.
M. L. Broward has quite a grievance
against the city, which resulted in his
expressing himself to Superintendent
of Streets Earl in no meas-
ured terms yesterday. It was
all on account of a quantity of wood
which Mr. Broward had furnished the
city to be used at the crematory.
The wood was delivered August 30,
and ever since then Mr. Broward has
been endeavoring to get his money. He
has been put off for various reasons, and
yesterday Mr. Earle told him that the
wood had been attached by Captain
Ritter, who brought it up in light-
ers. The captain's bill for towing
was $85, which Mr. Broward thought
rather exorbitant, considering that the
wood was only worth $65, delivered at
the crematory. It was only towed fifteen
miles, from Dunn's Creek, Mr. Broward
says, and then, too, he had not engaged
Captain Ritter to tow this lighter.
Negroes had been hired, at 75 cents a
cord, to deliver the wood in the city, and
they were the ones whose property to
attach. A lighter was broughtup previ-
pus to this one for $10, and the bill was
made out for the two, making a total of
$95. Mr. Broward offered to pay the
$10 due on the lighter he had engaged,
but Captain Ritter refused to accept
Mr. Broward will institute suit to
recover the amount due on the wood.

FRIENDS: And you have indeed been
friends to me as you would be convinced
if you cou'd have seen me last summer
at this time, and see me now. For
three years I have been treated by -the
best doctors in Indiana and Ohio. T
would get relief for a while, but only t ,
get worse again. When I commence;d
to take Paskola I did not think it woul-
do me any good, and had made up my
mind to quit taking medicine and let
nature take its course, when one of your

I asked my husband if I could try it, and
he is surprised with the result. I have
taken four bottles, and to-day I never
felt better in my life. I do not know'

every one says I look so much better.
I have advertised it well here and
several have tried it, and are much
pleased. I can eat anything I want and
sleep at night like a log. I cannot say
enough of Paskola and also of the tablets.
They are just grand. I wish I could
convince every one of its merits; they
would certainly use it. I remain your

Mr. A. H. King, a member of the Board
of Public Works, and joint owner of
landed property within the district af-
fected by the- Riverside improvements",
makes the following interesting answer
to the article published in the CITIZEN
EDITOR OF THE FLORIDA CITIZEN:
You will permit me, on behalf of truth
and honesty, to correct some of the reck-
less misstatements appearing in your
Issue of the 17th inst.
1. The city bonds were sold at par, and
in a manner which results in the saving
of Interest, until the money shall be ex-
pended, giving the city at least 1 per
cent above par-a magnificent sale In
comparison to the sales of other munici-
pal bonds within the last few years, and
this in the face of a suit Instituted by
your allies and the enemies of progress,
in the United States Court, for no other
purpose than to obstruct the city's de-
2. The work of paving Main Street has
in no manner been obstructed, but, on
the contrary, every possible exertion on
the part of the city officials has been
given to further the work, and this
against a plan of obstruction, where the
trail of the serpent Is again detected,.
and this in the name of sanitation.
3. The -comprehensive purpose" was
taken up many months ago by the City
Council and Board of Public Works, and
it was then jointly agreed to pave a
large number of streets, aggregating
about seventeen lineal miles, ramifying
every section of the city in equal propor-
tion. It was then ardently desired that
this work might go on through the sum-
mer months, so that the city and its peo-
ple might get the benefit of expenditures
when every dollar put in circulation
would be doubly appreciated. Ordi-
nances were passed authorizing the work
to be done, but the same devilish hand
of obstruction was again felt in an order
from the State Board of Health pre-
cluding any excavations. The city and
its citizens have suffered accordingly.
And now, forsooth, a tasteless mounte-
bank announces that three-quarters of a
mile of this outlined territory runs
"through the piny woods, where goats
gambol among briars and razorbacks
chew the palmetto berries". If he
means the beautiful hammock nestling
upon the banks of the gorgeous St.
Johns River known as Riverside, he is
surely a hedgehog, fleeing before the
dawn of day, or mole, content with native
4. The CITIZEN'S obligation to an-
nounce a fact which has been a matter
of public Information and gratification
to all-goqd citizens of Jacksonville for
weeks ii too tunny. The same intelli-
gencer who sees only the William-goat
and the razorback must surely have dis-
covered that Riverside Avenue was be-
ing graded for paving, now that the
grading has been completed for about a
week. Yes, Riverside Avenue has been
graded, and in due season, according to
contract already let, will be paved at a
cost to the city of Jacksonville of about
$3,000 for the entire work. This work
has been done-first, because of, the de-
sire of nine-tenths of the property own-
ers along the route petitioning the Board
of Public Works to do the work of pav-
ing for them, and thus avoid the delay
which would arise from waiting until the
time allowed by law for the property-
owners to do the work themselves to ex-
pire. Those who signed this petition
were: Briggs & Smith, by J. C. Greeley;
J. C. Greeley, W. T. Simmons, Telfair
Stockton; A. H. King and C. B. Rogers,
associates with E. A. Champlain of the
C.B. Rogers Company; Mary E. Sim-
mons, A. J. Hedrick, T. V, Porter, J. E.
Kuchler, John D. Baker, Thomas P.
Denham, S. E. Foster, and C. B. Rogers.
This movement was undertaken and
carried through in this outlying terri-
tory; first, because it was believed that
the State Board of Health would not be
so unreasonable as to stop it, and for
the purpose of putting bread into the
mouths of our laboring. men at a time
when they stood sorely in need of it;
and the burden of this work fell upon
these property-owners doubly, as the
city pays only one-third.
5. The diagram printed is worse than
a malicious misrepresentation. "A. H.
King and his associates", C. B. Rogers
and E. A. Champlain, own that hand-
some piece of property next west of the
Riverside tract, but the grading only ex-
tends into it a distance of 400 feet. The
total number-of front feet on this street
within this territory is nearly 11,000
feet, of which, according to the diagram,
with the above correction, shows that
any and all parties directly or indirectly
connected with the city government own
only about one-tenth of the abutting
property. This is not by way of apology
In any sense, but to expose the malicious
errors of your representation. For we
are more than glad that we have been
enabled to put the laboring people of
this city to work in this manner.
6. The insidious falsehood of the whole
article boldly appears when this govern-
ment is taken to task for not paving
Forsyth, Bridge, Julia, and Hogan
Streets, when it is well known to its au-
thors that the State Board of Health has
prevented this work by direct mandate.
And finally, perhaps, the taxpayer
might easily learn from the foregoing
who are the enemies of progress and oi
the people in this city. Yours, etc.,

"DOWN IN DIXIE:s
Mr. Burbridge and His Play To Be Greet-
ed To-night at the Opera House.
Judging from the number of seats sold

friends expect to give him a rousing re-
ception. Last night but few seats were

"Down in Dixie" has had a rousing re-
ception wherever it was played. Its
special features of Southern life and
character, its Pickaniny, Band, a festive
alligator, and the many other interesting
features combine to make it a play that
is attractive. It is well written, abounds
in dramatic situations, and has plenty of
fun and jollity to keep the audience
interested till the'curtain rings down.
Late last night the following telegram
was received from Mr. G. V. Burbridge,
who is with the combination :
"SAVANNAH, Ga., Sept. 17.-'Down in
Dixie' played to a full house here to-
night. Every seat was occupied, and
there wasn't scarcely any vacant stand-

Lord Aberdeen Snores.
From the Westminster Gazette.
The question of snoring was recently
discussed by various correspondents in
these columns. Here is a story bearing
on the point, which Lord Aberdeen tells
of himself: He left London at night in a
sleeping car for the North. In the morn-
ing, when he was awakened, he saw a
stranger opposite him. "Excuse me,"
said the stranger, "may I ask if you are
rich?" Somewhat surprised, his lordship
replied that he was tolerably well-to-do.
"May I ask," continued the stranger,
"how rich you are?" "Well, if it will do
you any good to know," was the reply,
"I suppose I have several hundred
thousand pounds." "Well,"went on the
stranger, "if I was as rich as you, I
should take a whole car, so as not to
interrupt the sleep of others."

part of town, and got hurt so he died?"
cried Guy; "he was brave as they make
them, my uncle says." Mark nodded;
there was a pain in his throat that
choked his speech, just then. Guy
wanted to say something kind, but he
didn't know how; finally he broke out,
"Say, you don't need to be run down
hill, this afternoon. I'll see you through;
they shan't touch you!"
"Oh, they got to now; I've given my
word," said Mark, "I don't mind it. I'll
fetch along a pair of overils, and take
off my pants, and put them on, and they
can slide me all they like."
Guy knitted his fine black brows, say-
ing: "Well, you're a sandy boy, that's
one sure thing."
Mark was happy all day. He ran home
(taking almost all his nooning, for he
lived on the extreme edge of the school
district) to procure a pair of extraordi-
narily shabby overalls, which he substi-
tuted for his trousers at recess, and he
underwent the initiation ceremonies with
the greatest good humor.
"I didn't mind it one bit," he said at
the supper table, recounting the adven-
ture to a breathless circle. I hollered
'Track!' and they all laughed, and it
didn't hurt much at all-only just when
I sat down, afterwards!"
After this all went well with Mark for
a week. He was full of anecdotes of the
boys of "our school" and "our class",
and especially of Guy Caruthers, who, for
his part, accepted the worship graciously.
Then the trouble came. How did it come?
Mark could not tell. Gradually the boys
were not so cordial. They did not ask
him to join in the games. Terry Williams
no longer showed his slate with the last
caricature of the master or the girls on
it. Even Guy, although he was'not cross
or rough with him, no longer paid him
the attention of the sportive spit-ball or
waited to walk part of the homeward
road with him. No one walked home
with him now. "The boys at our school
don't like me," thought Mark, his heart
contracting with pain. "I wonder why?"
He wondered so much, he tried so hard
to understand, that he losthis gay spirits.
His mother and grandmother grew
anxious about him; his mother made
him take blue mass pills, and his grand-
mother secretly built him a marvelous
kite. When Mark saw the kite his
mouth widened delightedly. "I guess
the boys will be begging to fly that!" he
cried. He hugged his grandmother
jubilantly; and he ran away to school,
the kite sailing above his head.
He was a little later than the other
boys. When he came out of the small
room where the dinner baskets and the
hats of his class were kept, all the school
was taking its seats. He passed to ,his
place smiling. "They'll be glad to play
with me this recess," he thought. As
he went by Guy's desk he gave Guy a
friendly little kick and said noiselessly
with his lips, "Got a kite!" But Guy
was rummaging in his desk, his face red
from exertion, and didn't hear or see.
He told himself that he was a fool to
mind. And he studied as hard as he
could before recess.
At recess he went back to the room for
his kite, and carried it out on the play-
ground. He stood with it in his hand,
and a High School boy running across
the yard called out: ,'My, what a big
kite!" But the other boys, his own
boys, did not come near him, except one .
small C class boy, who crept nearer and
nearer into touching distance. "Any-
body want to fly my kite?" said Mark,
walking back and forth and swaggering
the kite above his head.
"No, thank you," said Guy, running
past fleetly to join a group of boys on
the other side. "Who's for foot-
ball?" yelled Terry Williams. The
boys gathered about Terry, and
Mark with his beautiful kite stood all
alone. Even the little C class boy, after
a last wistful glance, ran to answer his
elder brother's call. Mark lifted the
kite; perhaps he did not see quite clearly,
for his eyes smarted with something wet
and hot, he heard a loud call from Guy,
"Look out! Look out!" and just as he
turned his head, the football went whiz-
zing and hurtling above him and shot
through the kite. The kite fluttered to
the ground like a wounded bird. The
next instant Mark's lithe body was
hurled like a thunderbolt on the big
Terry. The fury of the onslaught, was
such that the big boy was felled and
Mark was on him before he knew. it.
Down he went like alog, and Mark, crazy
with rage, pummeled his face savagely.
But the boys dragged them apart.
"He did it a purpose; I know he did it
a purpose !" sobbed Mark.
"Cry-baby !" sneered Terry, "I didn't
do it a purpose, but I don't care, you're
a thief, and ypu stole my cream cakes !
Everybody knows you are a thief !"
"Oh, quit that, Terry!" called Guy.
The flush faded from Mark's quivering
features; they stiffened, and he looked
"Was that why you boys wouldn't play
with me no more?" said he.
The boys looked confused. "Bestill,"
said Guy Caruthers in a low voice,
"there are some High School boys list-
ening to us; come off." He took Mark
by the arm, and the others followed
them, Terry fuming that he was going
to break Mark's head, but submitting to
be led by two friends, and restrained for
the present from slaughter.
* When they were well under the shelter
of the stairway, Guy spoke. "I always
said,"* said he, "that it wasn't fair to
Mark to suspect him and not say any-
thing. This is the way of it. Somebody
has been stealing out of our dinner bas-
kets. The boys of our class have met
and-the -fact is,\ they suspect you."
Guy looked uncomfortable as he said
this, and so did several of the boys.
"Why, do you suspect me?" said Mark.
He was looking very pale now, but he
didn't flinch, and he was quite cool.
Not so Guy, who flushed and looked
sick of his job. "Well," he explained in
an apologetic voice, "you see the pails
are kept in that room, and nobody can
go there but our class, and so it is one
of our class, and you being a new boy,
we didn't know you so well-and besides
the things weren't taken before you
"Were the things kept in that room
before I came?" said Mark.
"Thunder?" cried Terry, cracking his
knuckles, ''they were'nt; but then, why
did you have my cream cakes?"
"I didn't, what do you mean by that?"
"You did too," Terry retorted, but
with less fire, "I carried cream cakes for
dinner, and they were gone, and I told
the boys, and they spied on you, and you
were off by yourself eating your dinner,
and you had cream cakes."
"They were my own cream cakes that
my grandma made for me; I can prove it
"You always go in there last of all!"
shouted a boy on the outside of the
crowd. Terry Williams looked thought-
"ng d 1 nranrT 7 Itki hi a "lr nnllal cs.q
"That's because I live so far away,"
said Mark. "You boys think I'm a
thief, just because you don't know me.
You-you are mean as dirt, and I hate
you all, and I am going to prove to you
I ain't a thief, and I don't ask any favors
of any of you."
Mark kept his voice steady through
the whole sentence, then he ran away
from them all as fast as he could go.
They didn't know that he ran to get off
by himself and cry. He didn't know any
place in all that warming yard to flee,
and he ran back into the schoolroom.
That is how it happened that the teacher
found him sobbing at his desk. But he
would not tell her his trouble.
Neither did he tell them at home. His
mother had enough to bear, he reasoned,
and so had his grandmother; he locked
his shame and misery away in his own
After that morning he never entered
the room where the dinner baskets were
kept without company. Often he ran
all the way to school lest he should be
He was never out of sight of the other
boys, but he never spoke to them nor at-
tempted to play with them. Two or
three times Guy made an effort to join
him as he went home, but on each occa-
sion he quickened his- pace to a run in
order to avoid the proffered company.
Yet in his secret soul he craved it. The
only person who was kind to him at this
bitter time was one of the High School
boys, the same one who had praised his
kite, a boy named Anton Rubenstein.
Occasionally he would pass a word
with Mark. Once he offered him an old
knife. "I got a new one," said he. "No,
I thank you, Rubenstein," saiq Mark.
But on the impulse of gratitude, it being
then the noon hour, he opened his lunch
basket and invited Anton to eat his din-
ner with him. "If you don't mind,"
said poor Mark. He felt sorry for poor
Anton when he saw the dry bread and
fat pork that made the,other boy's meal.
And for the first time he noticed how
shabby were Anton's clothes. Anton
ate very little, though he accepted the
invitation. He was more communica-
tive than usual, and told Mark that he
back no more, I wanted one good
lunch, though. See how I did it?" He
wagged the rope which hung behind
him, as he spoke. It had knots in it. In
the same spirit of bravado he climbed a
little way up the rope, moving with
extraordinary swiftness and grace. "See?
there is a rubbish hole up stairs where
nobody goes. I sneaked in there. There
is the trap door; they had it for storing
things, and I found it when I was sent
for chemical stuff. It was all covered
over. I looked down and saw this place,
and I thought what fun it would be to
get my choice out of all those baskets."
"Oh, Anton, I never thought it was
you," Mark stammered. "I am so sorry."
"So'm I," said Anton grimly. "I
didn't want to be found out; but say I
was sorry for you-being suspected, when
I did it!"
"You did it all, I suppose," said Guy.
"Every bit," Anton answered com-
posedly, but his lips began to twitch as
he watched Mark's face.
Can't we let him off?" said Mark, in
a shamefaced way.
No, we can't," said Guy doggedly.
"I belong to a committee the boys ap-
pointed to watch this room. I got in
while the teacher was out. If she finds
me, she'll maybe think I'm the feller my-
self. We have got to take him with us."
But we only need to take him to
teacher, and maybe she'll let him go, if
he will promise never to take anything
"I was hungry," said Anton sullenly.
"Well, he's got to confess to teacher,
so she can tell the boys it wasn't you,"
Anton was willing enough to promise
that, and in fact the matter was thus
mercifully arranged. The teacher had a
long talk with Anton. He was so soon
going to leave the school that nothing
was to be feared from his influence on
the boys; and in that long talk the
teacher, who is a wise woman, found out
mitigating circumstances in poor An-
ton's life and education, and found under
his bravado a few softer traits that gave
some hope for the future. He promised
her to come and see her; and he parted
from Mark with a gleam of emotion.
"Say," said he, "I guess it's just as well
you found me out, and I'm real sorry
they thought it was you. But you"-
he turned on Guy-"you wouldn't have
caught me in a coon's age; I have seen
you through the crack and waited till
you was gone; I could have shinned
back in a jiffy !"
Guy disdained reply. "Say," he said
to Mark, "it will be all right now,
teacher will say we caught the thief,
anai it was nobody; in our school; and
that will let you out completely. The
boys are beginning to feel cheap, any-
how; that's why we started into find
the fellow ourselves."
"Ah, it will be all right," said Mark,
"and-it was just because I was mad I
said I hated you. I don't, you know. I
don't wonder you suspected me." ,
"But-but when you saw me creeping
in so quietly, didn't you suspect me?"
Mark opened his eyes. "Of course not.
I knew you wouldn't do such a thing. I
guessed you were hiding just like I
The teacher had listened to the dia-
logue with interest. She saw Guy's face
work, and she waited for his answer. But,
all he said was: "Well, you are a sandy
Nevertheless, knowing boys, she felt
assured that Mark's trials were over.
A GEYSER FOUND
In San iiego County .WVhich Spouts a
Column of Black Water.
From the San Francisco Examiner.
San Diego County now has a genuine
geyser, about as near a thing tosa vol-
cano as is to be found on American soil.
The geyser was discovered last Wednes-
day in the canyon leading from Paul
Santenais' ranch, on the San Felipe
grant, to the Borega Springs, and is at
the edge of the desert. At that point
the desert wall, or "rim rock", as it is
called, is high and abrupt, inclosing the
desert like the rim of a tub. San Felipe
canyon cuts through this rim like a
crevice or crack, which it undoubtedly
is, in what was once a solid wall. The
canyon is narrow, and the walls in places
are 2,000 feet high.
The geyser was discovered by two cat-
tle-herders, who were out looking for
water for their stock, as about this time
of year new springs appear in that
region. From the top of the canyon one
of them dimly saw a spout of water and
climbed down to investigate. He got
to within 100 feet and stopped there. He
did not want to go nearer. The ground
around was boggy and was saturated
with black water. In the center was a
pulsating spring which, at irregular
periods, spouted a column of black water
into the air from five to seven feet, the
column being about a foot in diameter.
He could not or did not ascertain
whether the water was hot or cold. The
overflow filled the floor of the canyon
and rolled on in a black stream down
toward the desert. -
He Was Comforting the Mourners.
From the Boston Herald.
I heard a story the other day of that
now rare official, an old-fashioned clergy-
man. He is settled over no church, but
having been for a long time in one parish
he has performed the marriage cere-
mony for two- generations, and baptized
as many, and is always asked either to
tender the last rites to the dead, or at
least to assist in that solemn office.
He is always very comforting to the
mourners, for the departed is sure of
heaven. But as he grew older his prayers
grew longer and tiresome. One day the
mother of a little family died suddenly,
and the bereaved husband sent for their
regular minister and said :
"I must send for old Dr. Blank, for he
married us, and my wife loved him, but
SI can't endure his remarks. I want you
to give him a small part of the service
to save his feelings."
The pastor thought he must give his
senior the prayer, but judge of his
chagrin when the old gentleman, after a
fulsome panegyric of the deceased, said:
"And O Lord, who will take the
mother's place with these dear little
children, two of them, if we are rightly
Shooting in France.
From the London Daily News.
Shooting is probably the most univer-
sally popular sport in France. Almost
every man is, has been, or will be a
,,chasseur". It is a healthy exercise;
inexpensive, since twenty persons can
unite to hire the lease of as many acres;
and is unattended with no risk of disap-
pointment, as the unlucky sportsman
can always buy a rabbit at the dealer's
to bring home to his wife. The French
Government annually issues 350,000
licenses, which bring in about 400,000.

A SANDY BOY.
BY OCTAVE THANET.
ICopyright, 1894, by 8. S. McClure, Limited.]
A great day it was to Mark Strong
when he first reported his name to the
principal of the grammar school in the
Larcom Street building. He had passed
his examination so well that, in moving
from one school to another, he was able
to skip a class, and instead of the B class,
he belonged to the A, which is the head
class of the room. Next comes the High
School, where the big boys who wear
coats go, and are called by their sur-
names, instead of Tommy or Eddy.
Mark's heart swelled even to be in the
same building with these grandees. He
looked to the time when he should have
left the High School and be helping his
mother to support the family. Had you
seen Mark that day as he sat at his desk,
too happy to study anything except the
faces of the -boys in our class", you
would only have seen a very thin lad of
13 in a suit rather small at the
wrists and the knees, with a round head
covered by a plush of reddish brown
hair rising above a white pipe-stem of
a neck and a shining collar, a freckled
face, a snub nose, sparkling blue eyes,
and a wide smile; but that plain little
face was the most beautiful and dearest
thing on earth to one woman, for
he was her only son and she was a
widow. Mark had every face "in our
class" firmly etched in his mind before
recess. They wero nice boys, he thought.
The nicest boy of all was Guy Caruth-
ers, who was a wonder with spitballs,
and yet somehow learned his history
lesson well enough to recite better than
anyone in the class. He looked just
like a boy who would know all the good
fishing places, but Mark knew one place

that he didn't; he was going to tell him
about it, and they would go some Satur-
day when Mark didn't have to mow
lawns. On the thought, he sent a flash
of his teeth over to -Guy, who returned
a polite, but very mild smile.
"I just kilow he's an awful nice boy !"
thought Mark. He was confirmed in his
opinion at recess. Terry Williams, the
biggest boy in the class, stepped up to
Mark directly he bounded'off the school
steps and stood grinning in the attitude
of a boy ready to make acquaintances.
"Hello, new boy!" said Terry, cracking
his knuckles, a trick he had.
"Hello .yourself," said Mark cheer-
S"Say, I suppose you know you got to
"What's that?" said Mark more sober-
ly; ,does it cost money?"
Terry and a number of other boys
S who had swarmed about Mark began to
laugh. Guy Caruthers sauntered up to
the edge of the crowd and looked on.
"Not a cent," said Terry; "we give you
a free ride."
"Oh, thank you," said Mark; and all
the boys laughed.
"Yes, down there, "said Terry, jerking
his thumb at the steep bank that pro-
tected one side of the schoolhouse,
"every new boy has to coast down there
three times, one for each class except
the D, of course, for they have to be
coasted; we other fellows coast 'em!
"I see," said Mark nonchalantly, eye-
ing the bank which the morning sun
painted green as jade. In the middle of
the slanting ground ran a sleek and shin-
ing pathway of withered grass. "But
you'll have to wait until afternoon till I
can change my clothes."
"Wait nothing," shouted Terry, "no
He made a grab at Mark who, how-
ever, slipped out of his hands like an eel.
"Listen to what I've got to say," he
shouted in turn. "I won't spoil my good
clothes without a fight, and if I fight, you
can lick me, 'cause you're fifty to one,
but I'll hurt somebody bad before you
lick me, and most likely the teacher will
hear the row and come out, and then
where are you?" (That's so!" from one
boy; "Tattle tale!" from some others.)
"I ain't a tattle tale, and any feller that
says I am can just step up here and get
his mouth slapped!" (No response to
this invitation beyond a laugh, but the
boys exchanged glances as those who
should say, "New fellow isn't afraid to
fight, anyhow!") "But if you will just
please be so kind, boys, to wait till after-
noon, when I can run home and get my
ola pants, you can coast me twice for
Here Guy spoke up, "Let him wait;
he's all right." Nothing more; but Guy
was a, power in the school; president of
the A class; and the matter ended in a
respite for Mark.
"Oh, that's nothing," he replied care-
lessly to Mark's shy thanks, "no fellow
likes to have his clothes spoiled." And
Mark's heart warmed at this kindness
until the confidence flowed from it, as
molasses will flow from a jug tilted in
the sun. "They used to be my best
suit, last year, and they are real good,
now," said he, with a glance of pride
down at the neat darns on the knee. "I
earned half the money to pay for them
when they were new, but my mother, she
paid the other half. She mended it all
up last night, after she came home from
work, 'cause it hurts grandma's eyes to
sew at night. I tore the pants falling
down when I was running to see a fire
and scrambled over some stones. She
sat up awful late, mending them. I
S didn't want to have her have to sit up
to-night, too, and-maybe she couldn't
S mend them, either!"
"Where does your mother work?" said
Guy; he began to. be interested.
,"She worked in Thorne's plow works,"
Mark said; she was a typewriter. "She's
a widow," he added, a soft red muffling
his freckles, "my father was Marshal
was going to leave the school next week.
He was going to work in the
lumber mill with his father,
then he should have money of his
own. In return, Mark told him about
his mother and his grandmother and his
little aunt Mamle, who was only 12,
and lived with them. In the pleasure of
this friendly new acquaintance, he was
tempted to tell him of the black shadow
hanging on him, the existence of which
he suspected Anton already knew, aind
as he gazed up at the kind, heavy ice
opposite, the temptation grew stronger,
but Mark resisted it. He had deter-
mined to have but one confidant. and
that one confidant had his word that1he
would say nothing. You would hatly
guess who that confidant was. Jiust ie
teacher. One wakeful night, Mark ro-
counting the clews he had picked q,
evolved'a plan, and he saw that to safely
follow out this plan without danger of
bringing worse suspicion on himself, he
must have some undoubtable witness to
his actions, and he remembered the
Meanwhile, the thefts had stopped for
awhile, to Mark's despair; but, recently,
had begun again on a bolder and more
defiant scale. The day before every'
basket had been robbed of its choicest
dainty, every basket except Marks.
There was no window to the room, which
was lighted by the transom of the door
opening into the schoolroom. This door
was locked every morning and not
opened until the noon hour, when all the
boys filed in and took their baskets.
Before the losses the door had been left
unlocked; but the strong iron bolt and
the stanch key did not seem to be of
much use to exclude the thief.
At noon Mark came back and said
something to the teacher; she entered
the room with him and they stayed for
ten minutes. As they passed out she
laid her hand on his stubble of red hair,
"Maybe you will," she said kindly,
"anyhowit is worth trying!"
That is how the next day at recess the
teacher opened the door for Mark, un-
seen by any of the boys, and he went
into the room. There was a closet in
the room, where was stored a mass of
old jars, electrical and chemical ma-
chines that had been used in the High
School. It was dusky and dirty. Into
this closet Mark stepped at once, leav-
ing the door a little ajar. Recess, he
had decided, was the hour of the thief's
visit. It must be, as at other times
some one would be watching. The min-
utes dragged, by; Mark's heart
drummed in his ears. "I can't expect to
catch him the very first time," he
tried to say consolingly to himself.
But the thought had barely shaped
itself before he started, and stared about
him wildly. After a second, he stepped
out of the closet, and almost simultane-
ously the schoolroom door slid open, and
some one entered. It was Guy Caruth-
ers. Mark looked at him; he stared, at
Mark. "Then it was"- he began, but
in the lowest of whispers. Mark caught
him by the arm, frowning imperiously,
while he placed one hand over his
mouth. He held him steady. "Listen!"
-Mark's lips shaped themselves into
the noiseless words-"Be still!" Frown-
ing in turn, Guy did listen. His frown
turned into an expression, of bewilder-
ment. "Now!" cried Mark, and as he
spoke, he threw the closet door wide
"We've caught you! It was you!"
cried Guy in a strange mixture of feel-,
ings, as he flung himself impetuously on
Anton Rubenstein. Only for a second
Anton recoiled. He dropped the ba.- k,-t
in his hand. But then he laughed
harshly and folded his arms. "Well,
you've been long enough about it," he
sneered. He looked far less moved than
Mark, who leaped against the wall
thoroughly shocked. "How did you find
out the trap door?" he continued in
the same ,tone; "if you had just
waited a day you wouldn't have
foundnrl rthin'n fnor T ain't co- r, i ,i

many disabled horses are slaughtered in
the city and their flesh sold as beef. It
Is believed that a considerable portion of
it is canned, corned, or made into sau-
sage. People know little about the com-
position of the sausage, canned meat, or
"pressed corned beef" that they buy of
grocers and butchers. It has come to
light that several cheap restaurants
serve horse meat to their patrons. It
can be bought for 2 cents or 3 cents per
The city owns a large amount of real
estate, including about 100 buildings,
which are leased by the Board of Educa-
tion for the support of schools. Gener-
rally an entire building is leased to one
party, who under-lets the differe nt floors
and apartments. A showing has re-
cently been made that more than half of
these are used for saloons, gambling re-
sorts, or for immoral purposes. The
leases generally provide against the im-
proper use of the property, but little at-
tention is paid to the requirements.
Several of the vilest resorts in the city
are school fund property.
Armed with a search warrant and
backed by a posse of fifteen men, two
constables entered the poolroom of Billy
Fagan, generally known as "The House
of David", and declared all the gambling
property therein confiscated. Among
the articles they attempted to carry off
were six blackboards, on which were
posted the returns of the races, then
going on. As a constable advanced to
take hold of one of them an acquaintance
called out: "Hold on; I don't want to
see you hurt, but these blackboards are
loaded, and you had better let them
alone." But this warning did not deter
the officer of the law. He caught hold
of one of the boards and received an
electric shock which burned his hand,
nearly paralyzed his arm, and threw him
on the floor.
As Congress made no appropriation for
printing the list of advertised letters,
papers in large cities will not continue
to publish it. This, in Chicago, will
work quite a hardship. Owing to the great
floating population here, the list of ad-
vertised letters is much longer than in
any city in the world. It ordinarily fills
twelve columns of a newspaper. Papers
containing the weekly list of advertised
letters had large sales. Now people
must go to the post office to ascertain
if they have letters which were not de-
livered by carrier.
Last Fourth of July two negroes in
Bloomington asked for soda water at a
diug store, and were refused on account
of their color. They, therefore, each
sued the proprietor for $500 damages
under the civil and legal.rights statute.
At the trial the judge decided that they
had no cause of action, as the law pro-
hibiting the keepers of hotels, restau-
rants, barber shops, public conveyances,
and.places of amusement from discrimi-
nating between people on account of
their color did not apply to a druggist
who kept a soda fountain, to a merchant,
or professional man. All these persons
may elect the persons with whom they
do business. The case will be appealed
to the Supreme Court.
Canadian Lumber in Chicago.
Letting in Canadian lumber may not
make it cheap in this city. 'The Under-
writers' Association has decided to in.
crease the rates on lumber in yards in
Chicago and vicinity 50 cents on $100. The
losses by the great fire in the lumber
district of SouUtl Chlcg about a yoav
ago, and the recent losses on the West
Side are given as the reasons for the ad-
vance. It is said that Chicago lumber
merchants now carry $12,000,000 insur-
ance on stocks.
The baseball team of Ponca Indians
who came here to play with palefaces,
defeated them in a spirited game in the
Union Grounds. The grandson of Sitting
Bull and the son of Red Cloud are mem-
bers of the team. Other members rejoice
in the names of Crazy Horse, Spotted
Tail, White Eagle, and Young-man-
afraid-of-his-horse. They attracted a
large number of spectators.
A pure food exhibition will be held in
the two armories on the lake shore dur-
ing the last week in October. Any arti-
cle of pure food, cooked or uncooked
will be admitted. Lectures on the pres-
ervation of food and cookery will be
given during the exhibition.
Vr~e Coinage and the Chicago Platform.
EDITOR OF THE FLORIDA CITIZEN : In
editorials *of September 6 and 10 inu the
CITIZEN yOU have stated that the plank
of the Chicago platform ("Democratic")
has received the endorsement of the
Populists, and you proceed to lecture
them from this erroneous premise for
their diversion from that theory of silver
Permit me to state, in behalf of the Peo-
ple's Party, and for the benefit of your
numerous readers, that you are laboring
under a very serious mistake. The Peo-
ple's Party, at its convention in Omaha
on July 4, 1892, promulgated the follow-
ing principle on the coinage of silver:
"We demand the free and unlimited
coinage of silver and gold at the present
legal ratio of 16 to L."
You will notice at a glance that the
above plank of the People's Party is of
an entirely different composition from
the silver plank of the Democratic plat-
form of 1892, which does not declare for
any ratio, and attempts to make the in-
terests of the American people subserv-
ient to those of foreign money powers.
The free coinage of silver at the ratio
of 16 to I has always been the policy of
this Government until the interference
of English bankers into American
finances in 1873. That its 'soundness
has never been questioned by any party,
up to that time, is apparent from the
fact that no political platform previous
to 1878 has ever contained any mention
of any ratio. After the demonetization
of silver, which, as is well known, was
accomplished in 1873 in Congress, with-
out the knowledge of any of our Repre-
sentatives, through the vile machina-
tions of Senator Sherman and two or
three colleagues, and at the instigation
of English and German bankers-'this
question of silver coinage first became a
factor in politics. The Republican Party
was held responsible for this betrayal of.
American interests, and in 1888 the
American people placed the Democratic
Party in a position where they could
have rectified Republican legislation.
The Democratic platform of 1890 con-
tained the demand for free and unlimited
coinage'of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1,
and on these pledges the majority of
Democratic Congressmen were elected.
If this principle of coinage was correct
in 1890, and the Democratic solons told
us on the stump it was, then it is correct
to-day; and we, the People's Party, have
adopted the Democratic silver plank,
and the Democratic Party of to-day has
repudiated its platform.
We maintain that the American peo-
noon the shorts had covered, and prices receded
Yc, the market being dull at 56Wc for Decembor.
The opening was 5G04c, and the range from 55%c
to 56Gc. Stocks increased 109,000 bushels, and are
now 26,15.6,000 bushels in the regular, and with the
private elevators are nearly 30,000,000 bushels. This
is too large for the present light trade to hold
Corn averaged slightly lower, getting Mc below
Saturday's close to 52y4c for May, but rallied %c on
first talkand in sympathy with wheat and the
short covering. There was selling of September
and October .by the elevator people, which caused
September to decline from 54c to 53c, but later
it rallied to 54Yc. Receipts were less than ex-
pected, 574 cars, with 500 cars for to-morrow, which
is considered small for two days. Commission
houses sold May early and bought later. Stocks
increased 346,000 bu, and are now 1,803,000 bu.
Oats were %Ac higher early, but lost it later.
Provisions were firm and pork advanced 20c, lard
10c, and ribs 73c. Packers who led the raid Satur-
day found that the country was not selling as ex-
pected, and the shorts wanted to cover. The
Anglo Company were the best buyers. Hog re-
ceipts today, 25,000; Saturday, 8,854; to-morrow's
estimates, 15,000. Prices were 10c lower. Cattle
were 1015c higher. Receipts, 12,000.

NEW YorK, Sept. 17.-Offerings of stocks this
morning were in excess of the demand, and both
came about equally from professional traders.
The selling was for short accounts to a great ex-
tent, but there appeared also to be liquidation bY
recently bullish operators, who have become dis-
appointed at the absence of outside support to the
The pronounced weakness in Sugar at the open-
ing doubtless had some influence in shaping the
sentiment toward other stocks. Good judges of
the market also find a weak link in the quotations,
to which the bankrupt stocks have been advanced
in the recent upward movement. The folly of
supposing that the reorganization of any of the
company in question could be accomplished with-
out sacrifices and concessions by the junior se-
curities holders is so patent that it is strange it
should have reached the acceptance that it has
among a certain class.
Except in a few instances, the railway list sus-
tained no severe declines. The weakness and the
greater part of the activity were in the industrial
stocks. Considering the marked weakness in the
stocks, the legitimate list, and notably the granger
shares, might be described as steady.
London houses bought St. Paul, but their trans-
actions in other stocks were for both accounts.
The break in Distilling and Cattle Feeding devel-
oped only such rumors as usually attend the affairs
of the concern when the market for it is weak.
Chicago Gas, which had been the only strong
stock of the morning, weakened also in the after-
noon, probably in sympathy witn the declines in
its market colleagues on the speculating.

ISPEVIAr. TO THI( CITIZEN.1
CHICAGO, Ill., Sept. 17.-A gentleman
of this city who has just returned from
a protracted visit to England and Scot-
land, where he talked with many of the
leading manufacturers, states that they
are greatly alarmed over tho progress
of the free trade ideas in this country.
They regard the present tariff law as
portending absolute free trade in a near
future if the Democrats continue to keep
control of the Government. By adopt-
ing the English plan of admitting free of
duty all the raw materials that enter
into the manufacture of goods, they see
that this country may become a most
formidable rival In all the great markets
of the world which are now chiefly sup-
plied by Great Britain, France, and
Germany. They fear a competition
which will be on equal grounds.
They believe that with free wool, coal,
iron, and lumber the United States can
produce manufactured articles cheaper
than any country in the world. They
acknowledge that we have a greater di-
versity of soil and climate, more kinds
of minerals, greater water power,
cheaper fuel, and more food than any
nation. They also give us credit for in-
ventive ingenuity, general intelligence,
and education above that of any coun-
try. They think we have simply been
hampered by restrictive laws which pre-
vented our obtaining materials as
cheaply as the English have. With
these restrictions removed, they believe
that we shall soon be able to undersell
any European nation in the markets of
Sopth America, Asia, and Africa, and
may be rivals at home.
Six Sets of Candidates.
Six political parties in this county
have nominated candidates to be vuted
for at the approaching election. As the
names of all these must appear on the
ballots that are used here, they will be
larger than a regulation bandana hand-
kerchief and somewhat smaller than a
bed blanket. The last political organi-
zation to preont a ticket was the Inde-
pendent American Party, which is an-
other name for the American Protective
Association. That it will receive a large
number of votes, and that they will be
chiefly drawn from the Republican Party
is generally believed. Most of the can-
didates of that party are objected to for
the reason that they are known as "pro-
A boy only 6 years old was recently
detected at the corner of two principal
streets endeavoring to -pick the pockets
of persons standing on sidewalks. As
he slipped his hand Into the vest pocket
of a mah who was stepping for a car, an
officer arrested him. He endeavored to
resist the policeman, and refused to go
along with him. He struck and kicked,
and when taken up in his arms endeav-
ored to bite him. When taken to the
station, he refused to tell his name and
residence, but stated that he was only 6
years old. He only secured 1 cent by
his operation as pickpocket.
Duel at Twenty Paces.
Dominick Bonano, Canto Borko, Pas-
quate Louis, and Caroline Granace were
all children of Sunny Italy, residents of
Ew"ng Street, and each about 12 years of
age. One evening they were discussing
duels, and they decided to fight one. As
the two former had pistols they were as-
signed as principles, while the third was
to act as referee and the fourth as sur-
geon. Twenty paces were measured off
in the back alley, the parties put in po-
sition, and the signal given to fire.
SBorko fired first and Bonano fell to the
ground with a bullet in his brain. He
*was taken to a hospital, where he died
in a few hours. Borko run away, and if
he can contrive to get to his native coun-
try, will probably become a mountain

crowds at its West Side Barracks by its

ard, and called "Hell In a Cottage". The

Pillaged a Locksmith's Residence.
Chicago thieves are no longer hard-
looking citizens, clad in rags, and fre-
quenting obscure streets at night time.
They are, to all appearances, gentlemen,
who limit their operations to avenues
and boulevards, and prosecute their in-
dustry by daylight. They call at fash-
ionable houses, often in carriages, walk
to the front door, and open it by means
of skeleton keys. They take the finest
articles they can find, carry them to their
carriage and drive off. If neighbors see
them, they presume they are members
of the family, or special friends. For
many wrieks they have been raiding
houses whose owners are away at pleas-
ure resorts. One of the fine residences
they pillaged belonged to a celebrated
locksmith and the inventor of a burglar
alarm, who had made a fortune fitting
up houses that would be proof against
thieves. Another way to gain access to
houses is to rent a room and occupy ,it
temporarily till the arrival of baggage.
During theday the time is improved by
visiting other rooms and appropriating
A gang of eight white men, two
women, and two Chinamen, who had
been engaged in house-breaking and
stealing in various parts of the city, was
recently arrested by officers stationed in
the southern part of the city. Six wagon-
loads of their plunder have been recov-
ered and more discovered. The men
were all fashionably dressed, and the
'women wore costly jewelry when ar-
rested. One of the Chinamen had a large
diamond on his shirt front. One of the
gang has made'a partial confession, in
which he states that i contains twenty-
;i three members. On the North Side,
highway robberies are frequent, one
woman and four men being held up and
relieved of their money and valuables in

The Liverpool advices this morning were very
isappoiniing, and have caused a further sharp
decline in our. market. Liverpool is said to be
depressed by free offerings of actual cotton from
he Southern markets. The decline here has in-
quced the liquidation of recent purchases of long
cotton, aud the buying is by the short interest.
The weather in the South for the past forty-eight
iours has been more favorable. Some rain is re-
ported, but over a limited area, and generally
,ght. Receipts are on a decidedly larger scale than
ast year, but are materially higher than the large
